In-person conferences have come to a sudden and complete halt this spring, and the annual Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) convention is one of the victims. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t listen to the results of the latest research in beef genetics and learn from the experts on how that fits into your breeding program.
BIF leadership is in the process of planning an updated symposium online. “Our BIF program committee working with the Florida group has honed the original schedule to work in the new online format,” says Joe Mushrush, BIF vice president and program chairman.
“Our goal is to provide learning opportunities that will help producers continue to improve their bottom-line focus on beef improvement. As our President Tommy Clark said, ‘Our mission as an organization is intact during this challenging time and we will continue to provide educational programing focused on how the beef industry can enhance value through genetic improvement.’”
The virtual event will be hosted online the week of June 8 starting at noon CDT each day. The conference will be hosted on the Zoom webinar platform. By mid-May, participants will be able to register for the event, find a detailed schedule and Zoom tutorials on the BIF website — BeefImprovement.org.
2020 BIF award winners, including Seedstock and Commercial Producers of the Year, Pioneer and Continuing Service award winners will be recognized during the online symposium.
